moose swimming glacier bay

maybe you have an idea of your health goals

and similar to these moose fording Glacier Bay...that we watched swim randomly one way then another and then circle back to painstakingly finding their destination on shore...

 you feel confused how to achieve your goals in the midst of the pressures of your daily reality.  

Knowing what you want is not the same as having the clear motivation to choose positive actions that help you achiever your goals. As your health coach I keep you focused on your goals. 

As an Alaskan, I know you are fiercely independent...

we pride ourselves on our resourcefulness.

We also pride ourselves on treating one another like family, being there to help when needed.

None of us can know all of the answers and do everything -- believe me I have tried, and it's exhausting!

I am here, when you feel stuck.

my Healing Journey

healing journey

I grew up in Pittsburgh, in a family where most everyone worked in the steel mills. I was raised on packaged and processed food, though we often had a garden. At the age of 13, I decided to be a vegetarian in an attempt to feel more connected to my food. Sadly, I was woefully uneducated in how to eat well so I became a junk food vegetarian. As a youth I was told that fast food, painful menstrual cycles, acne, PMS, allergies, and feeling sick to my stomach were all just "normal". Doctors looked me over, even put me in an MRI machine; and because everything appeared fine and I seemed healthy...there was nothing to be done

How wrong these messages were! Common symptoms, yes, however they should not be considered normal or healthy!

As a young adult I knew the city was not for me. I found myself- physically and spiritually- once my hands were in the dirt growing vegetables, raising animals, processing animals with respect, and during an intense few years learning to live off the land from a Cree Indian family, Freddie and Annie Jolly and while apprenticing with Ray and Nancy Reitze at Earthways. These teachers knew and exemplified what it has taken a couple of decades to integrate into my own life-- that real health and well being is about knowing one's self and having the courage to fully be own's own true self. Later in life when I spent a few winters in the remote bush of Alaska I had unlimited time to confront my emotional baggage. Years of working on my own health taught me that nutrition is more than just the food on my plate, though that is certainly important. True nutrition is about aligning one's physical, AND spiritual and emotional purpose. It is a journey of many steps.
